SCBWI WRITERS BOOT CAMP in Tampa, Florida, USA!

  • Tampa, Florida USA (map)

It’s a dream come true! My good friend and colleague, Gladys Jose, and I have been invited to give a Boot Camp for Kid’s book writers and illustrators in Tampa! Here’s the scoop:

PICTURE BOOKS—IT’S IN THE NUMBERS
Ethan Long and Gladys Jose

Description: Creativity and talent are crucial to a long successful career as a children’s book author and illustrator, but the thing that separates the amateurs from the professionals comes down to math and numbers. Page counts, production fees and advances, agent percentages, time management, book dimensions, dates and deadlines—breaking your day down to the numerical level lets you know exactly how long things take, and gives you the structure and confidence you need to sustain a long career in the publishing industry.

What to bring: Bring a work-in-progress or two and your favorite note-taking tools.

Target audience: Picture book authors and illustrators of all experience levels
